Vino’s going green

Stroll down any New York street in March and you can’t help be aware of the impending St. Patrick’s Day festivities, in which storefronts and bars become awash in a sea of green. This popular holiday is intended as a salute to the city’s Irish heritage, but is too often transformed into a night of student debauchery: while we too love downing 2-for-1 lite beers and sporting a novelty Leprechaun’s hat, we agree there’s nothing particularly Irish about it.

At Vino we choose our drinks carefully: having recently begun carrying non-Italian products on our shelves (including a growing selection of spirits), we’re thrilled to be throwing a real St. Patrick’s Day celebration this year. Join us on Wednesday, March 17 when we’ll be preparing Tom Moore cocktails made from Finian’s Irish Whiskey! A variation on the classic Manhattan, the Tom Moore replaces rye whiskey or Bourbon with Irish whiskey, making it the quintessential Irish-New York drink!

Finian’s Five Provinces Irish Whiskey harkens back to a time when Ireland was comprised of 5 provinces: Connachta, Lagin, Mide, Mumu, and Ulaid. This Irish-owned Cooley distillery produces a whiskey made from crystal clear mountain water and the finest Irish malted barley. An extended distillation process results in a rich, smooth and uncommonly clean whiskey.
